Thomson Reuters employees represent veterans at Target Field
Employees Pat McDonald, Mirna Rowe, Terry Pieper and Joe Munger stood up at Target Field’s home plate before the Aug. 27 Twins game against Seattle to represent Thomson Reuters ongoing support of veterans and their families, and its status as a Yellow Ribbon company.
McDonald, Rowe, Pieper and Munger are all veterans or reserve service members and are members of the Veterans Employee Resource Group, which last year led the effort to seek the Yellow Ribbon designation for Thomson Reuters.
“It was a huge honor to be recognized by the Minnesota Twins and Beyond the Yellow Ribbon for Thomson Reuters outstanding support of veterans, veterans’ families and active military members. It is wonderful to work for a company that goes above and beyond in their support of our nation’s heroes,” said McDonald, a lead software engineer in Legal Technology, and an Air Force Reserve captain.
Munger, a senior systems analyst in technology development and an Army National Guard captain, shares that sentiment: “Whether it’s through enhanced HR benefits at work for service members, or supporting the surrounding communities through the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program, Thomson Reuters has demonstrated their commitment in supporting the men and women who have served and continue to serve.”
Rowe, a senior project manager, is a Navy Reserve Lieutenant, and Pieper, a maintenance stores attendant, is an Army veteran and the Post Commander of Post 295 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in South St. Paul. Pieper once walked 170 miles in support of military charities.
